With less than 5 months far from the summer, we have 2 new big animated films to be released in May and June, and we also have the new Winnie The Pooh movie, but as long as it could be beloved by fans and people in general, it won’t be as big as the other 2 colossus
the showdown is here, which of those will be the highest grossing animated film this upcoming summer and which one will receive better critics?
Both original films wrapped up perfectly, but cars definitely has more potential for the sequel. Kung Fu Panda 2 just doesn’t. I’m sure the critics will go for Cars 2 because It will invoke memories of Sean Connery. Kung Fu panda just is going way out on a limb in it’s story, which is very odd, since it sounds almost exactly like #1 just with a new enemy.
Cars 2 will also win the box office. Mainly because kids will want o see a spy movie much more than a kung fu movie. Spy movies that are armed at kids and are actually good are few and far between.
I’m gonna say Cars 2.
I might be a little biased towards Pixar, but I feel like KFP wrapped up beautifully.
To be fair, so did Cars, but as Pizza Planet Truck has already pointed out, it has more potential for a sequel.
And I like the whole super-spy theme.
Ok, I’m sure SOMEONE will chomp my head because I said “kids will want to see a spy movie” so in my defense I was referring to anybody, but mainly people who were kids at the time of release for Cars 1.
Ok. You guys are right, but there is a time and a place to discuss that. This where we discuss Cars 2. The sequel with lots of gooey chocolatey goodness.
As well as Panda 2 The other sequel with some goodness too.
They disappointed me twice, but neither time involved Cars. Cars is pretty high on my list, especially considering I love each film in its own way.
Anyway. I think Cars 2 will do better, but(don’t kill me) even though I will see both in theaters, I’m a tad more excited for Kung Fu Panda 2. I can see why everyone says Cars 2(duh, this is Pixar Planet), but I disagree. I like Cars just as well as or close to as well as Kung Fu Panda, but I thought KPF’s ending made me feel…empty. I wanted more than another cheesy “fat panda wants food joke”. Somewhere TDIT said that the ending might have been more fulfilling if they had referenced the beginning, sort of like the original Toy Story did. I agree. I loved the movie, but Cars’ ending was satisfactory to me.
Anyway, like I said, I love Cars, and will see the sequel. I just thought PIXAR put a lovely bow on the gift that was Cars, and KFP…well, the ending could have been way better. Though I doubt it, I hope that’s why KFP is getting a sequel, not for the dough.
Panda 2 idea just looked interesting to me, but since Dreamworks annouced its stupid decision to make 6 films in totals, I lost my faith in that film, they will probably kill the franquise like they did with shrek
is the quote from wikipedia. Not sure as the actual source and I am not spending much time looking. I bought KFP on blu-ray (thankfully it was $10 or less) because I heard such good things. I only wathced it once and didn’t think it was that great. ah well it isn’t bad, but will wait 'til the sequal is in the dollar section to rent
